Three teachers from a school in Essex will be allowed to continue to teach despite being found guilty of paying students to mark each other’s work.

Faisal Iqbal, Inderjeet Panesar and Reiss Joseph, who were all teachers at Oaks Park High School in Ilford, have resigned from their post after a disciplinary panel found them guilty of “unacceptable professional conduct”.

Pupils provided records to the panel showing they had received payments of £43, £22 and £70 from the teachers, most of which were cash and a few bank transfers.

During the tribunal hearings, both Iqbal and Panesar both said they were going through a “heavy workload” at the time of their misconduct, with Iqbal and Joseph both saying they were still junior teachers at the time.

All three teachers admitted the facts against them for their misconduct and showed remorse for their actions.

The tribunal decided that though the trios their actions were “serious”, their remorse and the chances of them doing the same thing was remote, they should face no further disciplinary action and be allowed to carry on with their careers.
